L'Art de Plongée - C'est cet Homme à Nouveau

It's that man again! I thought I'd collect my remaining images concerning scuba pioneer Jacques Cousteau. Let's dive right in... (sorry!)

We'll start of with two editions of Le Monde du Silence (The Silent World)...

Robert Conjat.



J.P. Ariel




This piece is by Italian illustrator and comic artist Sergio Toppi (1932-2012)




Next we have French and Spanish posters for Le Monde Sans Soleil (World Without Sun)

Artist Darigo also produced posters for clients such as SNCF, Loterie Nationale and Philips. (Click for lager image).




Variations on the artwork for the Spanish poster appeared in various territories.



Two commemorative stamps now. I think these speak for themselves.




This card was given away with Brooke Bond tea in 1973 and was part of the set Adventurers and Explorers.



This next piece is a warning against the dangers of alcohol. After a brief summary of Cousteau's career we're told that he remains sober and that alcohol is deadly to divers! A tad extreme perhaps but the Art of Diving does recommend against drinking and diving.


Finally, this Jughead cover doesn't actually feature Cousteau but I thought it was worth including here. Art by Stan Goldberg. (Click for larger image).
